Blackberry has been lagging behind from the mobile phone market in the recent years but later this year, the company could be releasing a new handset. The new handset is the Q20, also known as the Blackberry Classic, and it will see a probable release date of November.
Blackberry is mostly known for their QWERTY phone releases, which integrates the desktop keyboard arrangement into the phone's keypad. This has allowed users to type faster due to familiarity with a computer keyboard.
The company has lagged behind the competition since the advent of the full touch screen phones like the iPhone or the Galaxy S series. While they are still powerful in the QWERTY phone market, they have faced serious competition from Nokia, which also launched their own line of QWERTY phones. more >>
A new Mortal Kombat title is set to be released sometime in 2015 by NetherRealm Studios. The studio is also responsible for the release of the Mortal Kombat reboot back in 2011 and Injustice: Gods Among Us in 2013.
During the Electronic Entertainment Expo earlier this year, the company announced the title, a tenth in the Mortal Kombat franchise. The title is called Mortal Kombat X and the studio insisted that the "X" is to be pronounced as the letter, not the Roman numeral equivalent.
The game takes place some 25 years after the last Mortal Kombat game, the 2011 reboot. Unlike in previous titles, most of the characters aren't making a comeback. Other than Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Kano and Raiden, Mortal Kombat X will have a roster of new and unfamiliar characters. more >>
T.D. Jakes, Perry Noble, Nick Vujicic and Jentezen Franklin were among the numerous participants of the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" that's been sweeping online social networks. The stunt was being used to raise funds to support continued research into treating and curing Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Participants of the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" record a video of themselves being doused with a bucket of ice-cold (or icy) water. Participants also state which individuals they are nominating for the challenge. If a person who is called out for the challenge fails to accept within 24 hours, they are then expected to donate $100 to an ALS organization (although some do both the challenge and make a donation).
An example of the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" can be seen in the video below of Jakes, pastor of The Potter's House in Dallas, Texas: more >>
H1Z1 is a game set in the U.S. where the world has been overrun by a zombie outbreak. Players must now enter the post-apocalyptic world with other players and work together to achieve a singular goal: Survive.
The game is a Massive Multiplayer Online game which puts players at odds and ends with the zombies and against each other. Basically, in order to survive, players must work together to defend against the zombie onslaught but the game is still an open Player-versus-Player game, meaning anyone could be trying to manipulate you or genuinely trying to help you.
Sony offers to players a myriad of new features that would set the online game apart from other games in the genre. H1Z1 is set to have more intelligent zombies where a single gunshot could bring a horde coming, or gathering in numbers isn't exactly a safety net. more >>
